Swimming is a fast-developing area of the sport provision at The Downs Malvern, with our swimmers gaining experience at regular galas held at local schools.

All pupils at the school, from Reception upwards, have swimming lessons and water-based activities over at the indoor pool in the Malvern College sports complex. All lessons are taught by well-qualified teachers.

The Headmaster runs a swimming activity on a Monday evening from 5.00pm to 6.00pm during the week for senior children, and the younger children are afforded a similar opportunity on a Friday evening, from 4.00pm to 5.00pm.

During the Summer Term, the school hosts an annual Aquathlon event, in which teams from over ten different Prep schools compete. This involves a 200-metre swim in the Malvern College pool, followed by a one-mile run around the College campus.
